Draft genome sequence reveals co-occurrence of multiple antimicrobial resistance and plant probiotic traits in rice root endophytic strain Burkholderia sp. LS-044 affiliated to Bcc
ConclusionGenome sequence data revealed an intertwined occurrence of plant probiotic traits and resistance to antimicrobials in the rice root endophyte LS-044.
This study also demonstrated that alterations in small molecule metabolites in the urine of patients with BC were very similar to results from a previous report. These findings indicated that environmental exposure to Cd, As, or Cr could influence the urine levels of metabolites, which may be involved in BC development. Further investigation is therefore required to examine a larger range of samples from different countries or areas in order to understand the impact of heavy metals on metabolism and BC development.

In this study, combining nanobubbles (NBs) and hydrogen water, we investigate the effect and mechanism of hydrogen NB water on copper induced acute toxicity to water fleas (Daphnia magna). The 24-h lethal Cu concentrations at which 50% of the population die were 84 μg/L in hydrogen NB water and 45 μg/L in control water, confirming that hydrogen NB water effectively alleviated acute Cu toxicity in D. magna. The results were consistent with a significant reduction of Cu uptake and decrease of Cu accumulation in D. magna. As confirmed in fluorescence spectrophotometry and high-content screening system analysis, the hydr...

However, the redox processes in oxic environments have received little attention. In this work, the interaction mechanism between Cr(III) and natural iron-manganese nodules was studied under oxic conditions, and the effects of chemical composition, dissolved oxygen concentration, pH, ionic strength and...
Scientists at Northwestern University in Illinois studied 166 indoor dust samples and found that bacteria living within them were able to share antibiotic resistant genes with each other.
Dietary supplementation with folic acid and zinc does not improve fertility in men and may produce unwanted gastrointestinal symptoms, new research has found.
ConclusionAccording to the notable anti-inflammatory effect in vitro and its joint protective effects on a septic mouse model, SESLA might act as an adjuvant drug candidate for sepsis, even those caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria, e.g., CRKP.Graphical abstract

A bacterial infection can increase inflammation and delay this process. Microorganisms are closely related to the innate immune system, such as macrophages and neutrophils, as they can start an inflammatory cascade. Essential o...
ConclusionHeterogenous evidence implied a long-term clinical benefit of probiotics as an adjunct to NSPT. Outcomes may be impacted by baseline disease severity. Limited microbiological and immunological data precluded any conclusive findings. Current evidence is insufficient to formulate clinical recommendations.
